Music and...


Brandon Lanning is in the studio of Dr. Jessica Butler.

My dream job is to become an Artist/Performer Agent.

The reason I choose SIU was because their music business program is spectacular and the internship opportunities interested me. Dr. Butler is also an amazing trombonist so that really sealed the deal.

I'm in the marching band and so are most of my friends, so music on campus has given me a family away from home!

In order to do my job the best I can, I will be immersing myself into whole new aspects of the world of music. Even if I don't end up performing or creating music, I see myself helping others to bring their musical goals to fruition.

The campus at SIU is stunningly beautiful, there is a perfect balance of man-made structures and natural landscapes that remind me of home.

I love to be outdoors either running or rock climbing. If anyone wants to join, just find me and let me know!
